Not quite a surprise (because we know how babies are made and we weren't using BC :-), but not planned - we weren't trying.

And she's a GIRL :-)

I quit smoking and stopped taking BC in October. My husband works very hard during Nov/Dec so while we tried around days 12 (way too early) he spent most of those months at the office or sleeping. Now he is being "punished" by having a newborn in busy season. He'll learn for next time...

A doctor may say I followed a typical pattern for one who stops taking the pill. 28/29 day cycles for three months, a 24 day cycle, a 36 day cycle, and then pregnant the next one (last LMP on Feb 27th). But I also asked for a blessing from a prominent rabbi during the last cycle. Maybe other religious members can understand how significant I feel that is.

We caught the egg after my first postpartum period, though we were trying to prevent pg. though apparently not successfully.

Looks like it's going to be a boy.

I'm not sure where to put you, Teacup! Which category would you put yourself in? And are you finding out the gender?

We were most definitely TTC, and we were extremely lucky to conceive on the first try.

We know baby's gender, but we're keeping it secret.

I was TTC since going off BC. Maybe not trying so hard or temping or peeing on ovulation sticks (I only did that the 36 day cycle and it made me think I ovulate late). So I'd say TTC and a surprise even though I know the sex. My husband doesn't!

A note for you wife&mommy - Friday13th is expecting a boy! I was looking at the list and saw a ? so I thought I'd let you know. Also I had said "surprise" - but we were TTA/TTP (just saw you made a new category).

Just updating with today's news.
Anyone else with a question mark want to say boy/girl/or not finding out?

I'm a huge fan of charting. We've been amazingly blessed and have conceived on the first month of trying with all our children. I hate telling people IRL that, though, because you never know when something like that will be painful for another mama to hear.

We're not finding out but I'm really feeling girl vibes.

We tried seriously for one cycle, and boy. Had we not DTD on St. Patty's day (ovulation) we might be buying pink instead of blue. :P

We started TTC on our wedding night So from December 29th until we found out on April 17th when I peed on a stick

My first 2 were unexpected blessings one boy and one girl (who just turned 7 yesterday ) This one we are finding out on his or her birthday if she is Isabella or if he is Alexander.

We were ttc and are expecting a girl. We've tried for all 3 and so far have one of each and another girl on the way. We tried the longest for ds. These last 2 were both first try.

I updated these for the results we are seeing after the "not finding out's" were born. Still seems to follow the trend for the most part. If anyone wants to add theirs to this just let me know which category you belong in.
